DUBLIN, Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Advanced Composites Market by Type, by Manufacturing Process, by Resin Type, by Application and by Region - Global Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.

The advanced composites end market in terms of value is expected to reach around USD 24.9 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% between 2015 and 2020.

Currently, North America is the largest consumer of advanced composites. Among all the countries in this region, the U.S. and Canada are important consumers of advanced composites. The U.S accounted for the largest share in the regional market, in terms of volume, in 2014. The market size, in terms of volume, is comparatively low in the RoW, but the market is estimated to grow between 2015 and 2020 as the demand from Brazil, South Africa, and the Middle East countries continue to grow.

Advanced composites can be classified on the basis of types, such as carbon composites, S-glass composites, and aramid composites. The advanced composites market is mainly dominated by carbon composites, and S-glass composites. Carbon composites are widely used in commercial applications such as aerospace & defense, wind, and automotive. S-glass composites are traditionally used in the aerospace & defense industry for ballistic applications. Advanced composites are now used in different applications due to their physical and mechanical properties such as light weight; high mechanical strength, thermal chemical stability, recyclability dimensional stability, heat resistance, good optical clarity.

Aerospace & defense, wind and automotive are the major industries where the use of advanced composite continues to increase as technology for its commercialization developing at good rate. Weight savings, fuel economy and other performance benefits will fuel the growth of advanced composite consumption in automotive sector. While need for alternative sources of energy is increasing the demand from wind application market.
